Rosacea

What is Rosacea.

There are multiple factors that contribute towards Rosacea.

  • Genetic

  • Hormonal

  • Lifestyle

  • Environmental

On a daily basis, many clients visit Pure Perfection Clinic on a daily basis and they all have signs of Rosacea.

Rosacea affects the skins appearance and texture. It is also a subtype of acne, where sebaceous glands (oil) can be large and/or hyperactive whereas in Rosacea, the glands enlarge gradually as the person ages.

People often think Rosacea always characterises red/pink skin, however many patients don’t show redness.

Distribution

Rosacea typically affects the central face, cheeks, chin, forehead and nose and is more often in women. It is typically diagnosed in the 4th decade of life and in those with a history of adolescent acne. Because Rosacea has such a symptoms, it is often misdiagnosed and inappropriate treatment is given.

What to Look For:

  • Changes in Skin Texture/ Large Pores

  • Skin Sensitivity/Irritability

  • Red/Sore and Swollen Eyes or Conjunctivitis

  • Spots/Dandruff on the Scalp

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Cysts/Spots

  • Oily Skin/History of Acne

  • Redness or Spider Veins on the Cheeks

In general hall marks of Rosacea include transient redness (flushing), which can sometimes be persistent, with an increased number of red veins and spots.

Triggers

Many clients often report of certain things setting off their Rosacea causing them to ‘flush’. The most common triggers include:

  • Spicy Food

  • Alcohol

  • Temperature Changes

  • Cosmetics

  • Hot Beverages

Treatments

Trigger avoidance and consistent skincare using ZO Skin Health products will help to control Rosacea. Zo’s newest product Rozatrol™ is a multi-modal treatment that relieves the visible symptoms known to be associated with Rosacea. It normalises the skin by reducing excess oil, which can lead to inflammation. An enzymatic exfoliator provides ultra-mild exfoliation, while amino acids support optimal micro-circulation to prevent the signs of premature ageing.

Benefits of Rozatrol.

  • Inflammatory modulation complex helps reverse the appearance of existing skin redness, while preventing future UV induced inflammation

  • Advanced amino acid complex helps promote optimal microcirculation to encourage healthy vascular functions and to restore skin to a more radiant appearance

  • Triple-blend oil control complex prevents excess sebum production and provides anti-microbial benefits

  • Enzymatic exfoliator provides mild exfoliation promoting epidermal renewal and helps smooth skin texture and even skin tone

  • Helps restore cellular communication signals to normalize and stabilize natural skin functions

  • Antioxidant protection helps minimize inflammation and damage induced by daily oxidative stress

  • Replenishes hydration and supports a healthy skin barrier function

 We must address the cause of Rosacea instead of reliving the symptoms which is commonly done by Physicians. Book your consultation online with our Aestheticians to find out more.

Rosacea cannot be prevented or cured, however it can be controlled and the symptoms shown, reversed.

Traditional treatments for papulopular Rosacea include topical Metronidazole Gel or Mirvaso topical gel 0.33% (for flushing) or Azelaic gel. Treatments with oral antibiotics can also be used, such as Tetracycline and Doxyoyclire. Patients are often put on long term steroids and moistuirsers causing many skin problems.
